Those Blizzak studless snows were 225/75R15. And yes, they did rub.

o rly? i had to put them on and send picture to Ford Racing because they sent the wrong anti -moan brackets. Well, one was correct, and one was wrong. I guess they wanted proof of their mistake before they send me the correct brackets which they dont make anymore. lol....

No. On a mustang GT they bolt on the outside of the flanges. Stupid Noob. This was to make sure Ford Racing woudln't give me a bad time i put them on as if i had a mustang and took the pictures. I am afraid they'd give me a bad time because i modified the axle brackets and have a Ranger. Those anti-moan brackets i need they dont make anymore and are ~$100 if i can find them. Eff that, i paid for the correct brackets.....dammit!

I think its the .75inch bar. Good luck finding a 1inch. I'm hitting up yards next week after work to hopefully find a 1inch. Although either way, it's a huge improvement over stock...

Mini-update:
Found a Turbocoupe T-bird at the junkyard, so i spent a few hours pulling it to the short block. Ran out of time so Shane went and finished it up. MAD PROPS GOES OUT TO SHANE FOR FINISHING THE PULL AND GETTING IT FROM THE JUNKYARD!!!!1!!1!!!ONE!!!!!!

The cylinder walls had some nice cross hatch still visible, the head gasket looked really new and nice, and teh clutch had rebuilt on it). So i am positive everything is good. Else, the car had 130,000miles on it.
Going to use the forged pistons and rods. Probably sell the block because i plan on using a Ranger 2.3l.

Once we get an engine hoist i'll pull it out and get it on the engine stand so i can tear it apart and inspect it all. Think i might get piston coating on it, anyone ever do that??
